This week’s Ring of Fire, hosted by Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Mike Papantonio and Sam Seder: Saturdays at 3 o’clock Eastern, rebroadcasts Sunday nights at 8 pm Eastern

Stepping into the Ring of Fire this week: we’ve got fellow liberal radio host Mike Malloy who’s going to tell us about his recent arrest while protesting the 8th anniversary of the Iraq War, and while protesting the treatment of whistleblower Bradley Manning.

We’ll also be talking with author Kevin Baker about the 100th anniversary of the tragic Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire in New York – a tragedy that helped create stronger workplace protections for all American workers.

We’ll also be talking with blogger and author Cliff Schecter about a creepy militia group in Alaska that is gaining way too much power over Alaskan politicians.

And author Robert Parry will be here to give us an update on the situation in Libya, and we’ll find out what Gaddafi’s regime and George W. Bush have in common.
